Could be a noisy toner cartridge.
Open the door, remove the toner cartridge, and close the door again. If the machine does a few seconds of motor running with no noise, then that is the cause.
Not usually a major problem, just nuisance value.

Hp M551 laserjet printer makes whistling noise when printing


Some times the toner has a clear plastic tape that is inside the toner, the tip is on the short side of the toner cartridge. if you do not remove that plastic then it would make that whistling nosies.

Streaks & Smears after changing toner cartridge.


Remove all of your toners and clean them off. Replace each one and make sure they are well setted in the unit before going to the next one. Make sure the carosel turns smoothly and nothing is hanging up on the sides. Reboot the whole printer and let it settle for 5 mins before printing. toners come lose sometimes when you turn carosel around. Hope this helps you these printers are a ***** to deal with ,but when they are right there great.

HP LaserJet 2100tn prints ok but with 3 lines of strange characters over image


Is your transfer roller clean?
How does the drum look on the toner cart?
Is the fuser getting bad?

Would you consider this an old image that is ghosting?

Patchy Prints


I believe that the Heat roller in the Fuser has a build up of toner on it(in some areas) and as a result is not fully fusing the toner into the paper. when you use a thick setting you are actually slowing the speed down to allow more heat to the toner. the thicker paper causes more pressure allowing the toner to fuse properly. I would say you need a new Heat roller and possibley a pressure roller. You could try running 20 copies of a blank white page. Sometimes this will help. Poor fusing can also cause a previous image to come up on the next page or repeat itself down the page. A service call is in order if this does not work.

Hope this helps

Makes grinding sounds & usually prints blank


Try new toner cartridge, or even the old one if you still have it. Check if the grinding noises go away.
